Yoga and Meditation retreat weekend 20-23 July at De Tout Coeur Limousin




Take the time to relax, boost your wellbeing and nurture your self healing through an exploration of yoga and meditation practice.


We are very happy to welcome back Tandy Pengelly from Prana Navina Yoga to run the yoga and meditation retreat weekend with us here at De Tout Coeur Limousin.

Each day of the healing weekend we will be working with Whole Body Awareness Yoga (WBAY)
Our bodies are speaking to us all the time, trying to tell us what they need, in a Whole Body Awareness Yoga (WBAY) we develop the tools to start listening to those needs.

Day 1 we will be working on opening the energy lines in the front of the body, and day 2 we will target the energy lines of the back of the body. Each day creating strength, release and flexibility within the individual boundaries of our individual bodies.

Whole Body Awareness Yoga (WBAY) system to respect and work with both our energies and creating a strengthening and releasing practice that leaves you feeling both energised and freer in your physical, mental and emotional bodies, whilst also listening to the needs of your spiritual practice.

June in the garden - beans shooting, elderflower blossoming and courgettes flowering

A late spring is bringing with it early signs of growth in the garden here at De Tout Coeur Limousin.

Beans are shooting, the elderflower is blossoming and the first courgettes are flowering too. Love this time of year and going out everyday to see what has grown overnight. 

What are you growing this year?  

Watch this space for more garden updates coming soon...

what we learn from nature

"When you immerse yourself in the natural world, you wander a little through the landscape of your soul."

May morning in the meadow by De Tout Coeur Limousin






"At our center, which comprises nothing, like the hollowness in the middle of a whirlwind, we fall back into the world. Every being is so deeply rooted in others that it is never identical with itself in the final analysis—its essence comprises far more what it is not.

This same nothingness delights us when the meadows lie quiet and full below the night sky, when the small glowing insects fall into their shadows and fade like dying stars. The meadow is a part of our body, folded outward, ready to be strolled through. It is one of our sensory organs in which we feel something that we would not otherwise understand properly."

Using Bija mantras in meditation 


In Vedic tradition, “Bija Mantras” are used as tools for the expansion and widening of one’s mind by utilizing the power of sound vibrations. “Mantra” is a Sanskrit word made up of two syllables: “man” (mind) and “tra” (liberate). Thus in its most literal translation the word “Mantra” means “to liberate one’s mind”. In Sanskrit a “seed” is called “Bija.” The word “Mantra” when translated by virtue of its practical use relates to a sound that can “create transformation.”
Certain sounds which cannot be translated into a literal meaning but have the power to create great transformative growth and expansion in humans at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels are known as “Bija” or Seed Mantras.
“The Bija mantras are one-syllable seed sounds that, when said aloud, activate the energy of the chakras in order to purify & balance the mind & body. When you speak the bija mantras, you resonate with the energy of the associated chakra, helping you focus upon your own instinctive awareness of your body & its needs.”

What is a chakra? In Sanskrit, chakra translates into “wheel”. These “wheels” can be thought of as vortexes that both receive & radiate energy. There are 7 major energy centers (aka chakras) in the human body. They run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Emotions, physical health, & mental clarity affect how well each chakra can filter energy. This in turn dictates how pure the energy is that’s emitted from different regions of the body.
In traditional Hatha Yoga, the 7 cleansing bija mantras associated with the chakras are:

“LAM”- chakra 1 (root)
“VAM”- chakra 2 (sacral/navel)
“RAM”- chakra 3 (solar plexus)
“YAM”- chakra 4 (heart)
“HAM”- chakra 5 (throat)
“OM”- chakra 6 (third eye/brow)
“OM”- chakra 7 (crown)
